Its been a while...

I have been missing blogging since we moved and hope to start up again soon. I love picture blogging here and since dial up internet is what we have that is not really feasible. Yes, I said dial up. lol I have posted several times over at Lally, though the posts are sporadic at this point. One day soon I will get the hang of this internet thing and be back to regular posting.

In the mean time whats been going on? Since my last posting we have moved to a rental about 25 miles east of our previous location. Its about 10 miles from a little town and 25 from bigger shopping options. We have had 6 birthdays starting in December with Madeline and ending in May with Joe. Our chickens have been expanded from four to about 30-40ish right now. Some will be dinner soon, others are the laying flock, and 4 are the kids show birds for 4H. The garden season started with much anticipation and excitement. 3 garden shares have been sold and this is our biggest garden ever! The weather has thus far been uncooperative with about 3 non rainy days in all of May. Mind you I said non rainy and not sunny. We have had hail the size of golf balls and well I have never been so unsuccessful at growing greens. lol I am not even going to tell you about the tomatoes and the peppers. Its just sad, very sad. The poor things couldn't be in the house any longer and they had to go out. That's the last few months in a nutshell. I hope to be back blogging soon as I really miss it. Just need to figure out a workable option for me with photos. For some reason blogging is not the same for me without photos. :)

We are here

We moved in on the 10th and are still unpacking. No photos yet but soon I promise!! The kids are really enjoying all the areas to explore in the yard and I am completely enjoying the peace and beauty that is out here. Madeline told me the other day that the air smells good out here. :) I am starting to plan our garden and am really enjoying unpacking and setting up house again. lol Hope you are all well just wanted a quick update on here as its been a while. See you soon with pictures...

November/December 2009

These are in no particular order. In fact I think they are backwards. lol

What do your kids do when you pack all of their toys without thinking? They make a mouse house!

Marah enjoying the snow

Naomi not really sure what it was

Christmas Eve reading the bible
The three older kids and Joe went to zoo lights.

Someone turned 9!!

Gingerbread cookies
Drawing with Daddy
They played dress up
This is a game called Star Mars. Think StarCraft and Mars Mission combined. The kids made it and its really quite fun.

Michael checked out this book from the library and fell in love with it. Its The Little Red Hen only with a burrow who grows corn and makes tortillas.
We of course had to make our own tortillas.

If you haven't heard yet we are moving! This Saturday to be exact. The house is wonderful and on an acre. We are super excited. Not sure how much blogging I will be doing as the house is so far out in the country that the options are dial up or satellite. Satellite is not in the budget yet so we are giving the stone ages, I mean dial up, a go. I posted more about the move over on my blog with some pictures and I will try to get new house pics up there if I can later. have a great 2010 everyone!!
